History

Ueli Dubs, a former policeman, establishes Dumet AG.

“In 1975, a Greek who filled olives in stand-up pouches and sold them in Switzerland wanted to sell his business to me. Yet, at the last moment, he changed his mind - and I was left with nothing.” But it was immediately clear to Ueli Dubs: “What he can do, I can do, too!” The first barrel was quickly bought, and the first production room was quickly set up in the parental farmhouse. The journey through Switzerland started with the first pouches (filled by hand). The breakthrough came with the first Migros cooperative. From then on, Dumet AG grew continually.
